Tracer rounds aren't known for accuracy. Do they light up good?

^^^^This. They are constantly losing weight as they burn/travel downrange becoming less and less stable.

Tracers will get you about 4 MOA at best. Sounds like nothing wrong with your gun or load.

They have been known to start fires if you aren't careful. I know this from personal experience.
